Landscape Design for the Homeowner

“Sustainable Landscape Design for the Homeowner” -  is a comprehensive overview of the process of sustainable landscape design and organic gardening practices. We will use concepts such as right plant/right place, shading out weeds with ground covers, use of hardy natives, installing rain gardens and rain barrels. Whether you are a seasoned gardener with an eye for design wondering about updating your current landscape, or new to the world of gardening and landscapes and need to start from the beginning, you will be armed with enough knowledge to make decisions about how best to move forward with your own project. Every week includes a power point presentation of landscape projects, design solutions, favorite plants, succession of bloom, favorite trees, shrubs and perennials. 

Week One; Site Analysis - an inventory of the features of your property, including the house, garage, trees, paths, driveways, easements or even a bad view. Also includes things like soil conditions, wind, shade and sun, excessive moisture. For those students who wish to begin a drawing, bring Graph paper, pencils, measuring tape.

Week Two - the dreaming begins. In this step students have an opportunity to think about how they want to use their property. This includes planning for outdoor activities like children's play areas, a pool or pond, entertaining, and napping, as well as privacy, lighting, security and practical aspects like how many cars will fit in your driveway and where to put the trash cans. These ideas will go on paper and be moved around like a jig-saw puzzle until the student is happy with the placement.

Week Three: Time to look at student drawings, Q&A, and additional power point presentations.

ATTENDANCE IS LIMITED, REGISTER AT THE REFERENCE DESK

Claire Schuchman is a local landscape designer, Phipp’s Conservatory and Gardens, Master Gardener, and frequent contributor to the Mt Lebanon Magazine. Her garden has been featured on past Mt. Lebanon Public Library Annual Garden Tours and the Pittsburgh Botanic Garden’s Open Gardens Tour. Contact her at Claire.CS@ExceptionalGardens.net. Presented in cooperation with the Mt.

Bones of Paradise / Jonis Agee

A decade after the Wounded Knee Massacre, at which the U.S. 7th Cavalry regiment gunned down over 200 Lakota, white rancher J.B. Bennett and Sioux woman Star are found dead on Bennett's land.  As Bennett's estranged wife, Dulcinea, returns to the ranch and gathers the remaining family members, Star's sister, Rose, vows to find Star's killer and avenge her death.  Set in the Nebraska Sandhills at the dawn of the 20th century, The Bones of Paradise is a haunting multi-generational family saga that explores a tragedy with deep historical roots through the eyes of flawed and fully fleshed-out characters.

Beginners Irish Gaelic

PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE IN TIME

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.

Gerrymandering and Pennsylvania’s 18th District

As the special election nears for the vacant seat in Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District, Mt. Lebanon Public Library and the non-partisan Fair Districts PA offer a special program tracing the history of the district’s shape, size and boundaries.

Fair Districts will present an educational discussion about how gerrymandering has altered the district’s boundaries and location, and its voter makeup.

Fair Districts volunteer speakers Anna Fisher and D. David Misra will present maps and data, and explain the causes and effects of gerrymandering in the context of the shifting makeup of the 18th District. Via a conversational presentation, they will also explain how bills proposed in the Pennsylvania legislature would end gerrymandering in favor of non-partisan mapping.

Dr. Fisher is an Associate Professor of Psychology at Carnegie Mellon University and a resident of the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh. She was born in Ukraine, raised in Russia, and came to the United States in 1999 to study at the Ohio State University. She became a U.S. citizen in 2011. At Carnegie Mellon, she teaches research methods in psychology, and conducts research on cognitive development in early childhood. Dr. Fisher has volunteered as a speaker for Fair Districts for a year.

Mr. Misra, with master’s degrees in Public Policy and in Political Management from American University, Washington, D.C., is an adjunct professor in the Department of Social Sciences and Education at the Community College of Allegheny County. One of his political science seminar classes during the fall 2017 semester focused on the 18th District. He also is founder of Development Worx LLC, a consulting firm serving the non-profit, government and education sectors with communications, grant-writing and attendant strategic services. Mr. Misra has lived in the 18th District, in Upper St. Clair, since 2003.

Registration is required.

Landscape Design for the Homeowner

“Sustainable Landscape Design for the Homeowner” -  is a comprehensive overview of the process of sustainable landscape design and organic gardening practices. We will use concepts such as right plant/right place, shading out weeds with ground covers, use of hardy natives, installing rain gardens and rain barrels. Whether you are a seasoned gardener with an eye for design wondering about updating your current landscape, or new to the world of gardening and landscapes and need to start from the beginning, you will be armed with enough knowledge to make decisions about how best to move forward with your own project. Every week includes a power point presentation of landscape projects, design solutions, favorite plants, succession of bloom, favorite trees, shrubs and perennials. 

Week One; Site Analysis - an inventory of the features of your property, including the house, garage, trees, paths, driveways, easements or even a bad view. Also includes things like soil conditions, wind, shade and sun, excessive moisture. For those students who wish to begin a drawing, bring Graph paper, pencils, measuring tape.

Week Two - the dreaming begins. In this step students have an opportunity to think about how they want to use their property. This includes planning for outdoor activities like children's play areas, a pool or pond, entertaining, and napping, as well as privacy, lighting, security and practical aspects like how many cars will fit in your driveway and where to put the trash cans. These ideas will go on paper and be moved around like a jig-saw puzzle until the student is happy with the placement.

Week Three: Time to look at student drawings, Q&A, and additional power point presentations.

ATTENDANCE IS LIMITED, REGISTER AT THE REFERENCE DESK

Beyond Members: Women as Anchors of the Movement

Important Note: This program will be held at the Fine Arts Theater, Mt. Lebanon 

Pauli Murray. Ella Baker. Jo Ann Robinson. Daisy Bates. Dorothy Height. Septima Clark. Diane Nash. Fannie Lou Hamer. Anne Braden. Constance Curry. Joan Browning. Too few Americans recognize any of these patriotic activists for social justice. Until recently, women’s contribution to and indeed leadership in the Freedom Movement went under-reported. This talk probes the impact of select women across decades to the freedom struggle, and offers vignettes of a number of black and white women in the hope of sparking the audience to explore their stories further.

This talk is the second of a three part series and the launch of an initiative to feature Mt. Lebanon teachers in public forums.

 

Presented by the  Historical Society of Mount Lebanon

Beginners Irish Gaelic

PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE IN TIME

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.
